Seeing creative projects through from conception to creation, we are a fully inclusive facility with the unique ability to tackle cross-medium challenges.
With extensive backgrounds in mold making, bronze and architectural casting, traditional carving and sculpting, as well as conventional trades experience,
it is rarely a conversation of if we can do it, but how we can.
Joseph Sones is a maker, and has been immersed in the world of creation since he was a child. Wood carvings, metal sculptures, or plaster -- the medium itself changes from day to day, but the process of creation remains a constant; especially when it involves a combination of disciplines.
He has spent many years working in niche markets that blend his trades background with his love for art, and in 2009 he partnered with Lyonstone Designs to focus on designing and making architectural accents for award-winning architects and designers.
In addition to his years of experience mould making and casting, Joseph has worked as a commercial sculptor in the film industry and built custom furniture pieces along with decor accents for local bars and restaurants.
Joseph is inspired by the tactile experience of working with natural elements, and the tradition of heirloom pieces that have lasted for generations.
Robert Turriff is a Vancouver-based artist who sculpts commercially as a film industry technician, and creates his own unique conceptual works as an artist. He has been sculpting professionally since 2002 and graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 2009.
His conceptual sculptures combine classical and contemporary practices. He often works with recycled materials, preferring the unconventional; mass-produced objects, not usually used in art production, that take on new meaning through the manner in which he combines them.
Recurring themes in his work layer the parallel histories of cinema and the commercialization of nature, with an emphasis on how technology shapes both film production and the West Coast's increasingly plundered natural resources.
His artwork bows to the dominion of nature, questions our place in it, and reflects illusions we tell ourselves.
